'm chris hayes, the white house today got the best news it has had in two months about obama care. we will bring that news to you in a moment as well as the president's latest push to get young people to enroll. but it has always been the case, the political fate of obama care would rest ultimately on its performance, what it did for people's lives and not on the lies and slander directed at it from the right. and while the smears deployed against it get shorter and shorter we have the latest example. did you hear about the guy whose baby was denied coverage under obama care? >> those family plan quotes included myself, my wife, our 7, 5, and 7-year-old, and 18 month-old was left off. the response was no, they don't allow family plans under the age of 8. >> this guy tried to sign his family up for insurance on the new york state exchange and they refused to enroll his 18 month-old baby? obama care is anti-toddler? the story, as you might imagine, got a lot of pickup in the right wing media. the post surfaced again and again all over conservative press and of course landed distraught f

these very different screw-ups and how that affects their credibility. >>> a magazine says michelle obama is a feminist nightmare because the first lady is avoiding political battles and spending time with her kids. where does politico get off, anyway? katie couric becoming a global anchor for yahoo! can a website really compete with tv news? and a commentator goes public in describing how she found jesus and became a devout christian, stunning her left-wing friends. a stunning conversation with kirsten powers. i'm howard kurtz, and this is "media buzz." it was as big as any mistake in the history of "60 minutes" based on the bogus account of a security contractor who who claimed to have been at the u.s. compound the night of the attack in benghazi. cbs news chairman jeff factor took some of the blame this week after an internal inquiry saying in his other role as executive producer of "60 minutes," "i pride myself in catching almost everything, but this deception got through and it shouldn't have." he also put his star correspondent, lara logan, and her producers on what's been politely
more reason to trust insurers than the obama administration. they're just trying to keep their heads down. >> now, instead of having an actual system making sure that the t's are crossed and is are dotted we're going on an honor system. insurers going to tell them this is how much taxpayer money i want. we're going cut checks. >> real area is in the size of the subsidies. that is where the true honor system is. there was a report issued today that says if the irs didn't have a system to check what your income is, and that is going to incentivize a lot of americans to say i didn't make that much money this year, give me a bigger check. that is where fraud is >> my head is switching just in this segment. thank you for being here. before this news broke, the president attempted to hit the reset button on his health care law. the law works. really? how does it work exactly if there is no mechanism for payment for coverage? you heard him go out there and defend the law in familiar ways. he did it when the approval rating hit a record low to cording to the average of all polls look. in the
safety net for a new age. helped make sure we didn't go hungry. >> president obama wanted income redistribution along with health care access. and the only way to do that, to make money from the haves and give it to the have nots. >> at this festive season of the year, mr. scrooge, it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the poor and destitute. >> the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own, that should offend all of us. to take money from the haves and give it to the have nots, that's not what's best. ♪ >> be off with you! >> christmas is a time of generosi generosity. >> what other secular humanists are peeing on your you'll log. >> convince people saying that jesus would feed the poor which he would. we all know that. but would he impose a system that hurts one group to help another group? >> the top 10 percent no longer takes in one-third of our income. and now takes half. >> hum bug. >> it's this theoretical world

does it mean for the obama website which officials say very little security was built in. >> it's not a website that's highly secure and hackers are flocking to it to take krang of security risks that have still there. stuart, first let's talk about the hack of the social media sites. what do we know about it? >> reporter: 2 million password stolen. twitter, fan *, gmail. but pass words can be changed. i imagine many people right now are changing password. that's in strong contrast to the kind of information that's available if you hacked into your account on the obamacare website. that's intensely personal information, it cannot be changed. it's your identity. and that's out there available for hacking. >> this is global. and i believe this attack took place in the netherlands. >> reporter: this morning mike rogers who is looking at the security of the obamacare website, that's a separate issue. he says that website has been attacked by national governments overseas, and by criminal organizations overseas. he says shut it down because you are not guaranteeing the privacy and se

people visited the website alone. there's a huge demand for better health care. and president obama has this challenge for his critics. >> if despite all the millions of people benefitting from it, you still think this law's a bad idea, then you've got to tell us specifically what you'd do differently to cut costs, cover more people, make insurance nmoe secure. >> so what exactly would they do differently? speaker boehner, take it away. >> the american people want to be able to pick their own type of health insurance. they want to be able to pick their own doctor. they want to be able to pick their own hospital. that's what a patient-centered health care system will look like. >> will that be up for vote in 2014? a bill like that? speaker, will that be up for a vote in 2014? >> we'll see. >> we'll see? that's what you'll tell the millions of americans who want affordable health care? we'll see? that's not good enough. >> you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> this law is working and is here to stay. joining me now are cong

and on the lower end of the economic spectrum, you aren't. >> as president obama pointed out yesterday a growing disparity between the haves and have-nots here in the country. is that a real threat to the overall economy? >> i think it absolutely is. i think it is the key economic problem of our time, the growing income gap and stagnant wages. our economy is made up of 70% consumer spending. if you have the majority of americans not getting raises, not feeling confident you cannot have a more robust recovery longer term. we've got to get unemployment down and wages up. >> you're talking to the smartest analysts in new york, what is their prediction going into 2014? what can we an tess pate? >> well, i think that people are expecting the federal reserve to start tapering back on its asset buying. they've been pouring $85 billion a month into the economy, one of the reasons stocks remain high. i did a cover story in "time "s on carl icahn who believes that the market is going to break at some point, in part because of things we've been talking about, higher inequality, low wages and generally low
obama was a new united states senator in 2005. nelson mandela, world statesman, retired from public life, but still the proud father of a new south africa. that meeting in washington was mr. obama's only opportunity to tell mandela in person how he inspired his own political activism. >> my very first political action, the first thing that i ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics was a protest against apartheid and like so many around the globe, i cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that nelson mandela set and so long as i live, i will do what i can to learn from him. >> during mr. obama's first trip to south africa as president in june of this year, serious consideration was given to a meeting with mandela at the hospital, but even then, he was far too frail and mr. obama huddled instead with the family inside this compound. then brought him to the prison. mr. obama referred to mandela by his south african name of endearment. madiba. >> madiba's words give us a compass in a sea of change. >> with mandela's passing, the president said others must now hol
standpoint. because whether it's obama, and whether it's war powers act, whether it's getting into iraq, these are all issues are deeply concerned about. so you criticized and, you know, you've made some i think remarks concerning, i don't think you take some of this seriously of what your colleagues have to say up there. so give me an answer as to what you think we need to do to get, to curtail the executive power the way i think it's been used over the years. >> you may answer the question quickly. >> quickly spin well, i think you can pass legislation to overturn an executive action to disapprove the. you can withhold funds for it speeded let me ask you. you are not reciting, 94% of obamacare is mandatory spending. and the democrats pass that in italy without any motion from the public. nothing to be done about that at this point. it's the law. i yield back. >> thank the gentleman from pennsylvania. the chair will not recognize the gentleman from new york, my friend, mr. jeffries. >> thank you, mr. chairman, as was ranking member, and the panelists for their participation this mornin
for the enforcement of constitutional rights and a surveillance under bush and obama and the patriot act, warrantless surveillance in the bush administration and things like that. i must say that everything we are talking about today is laughable in my opinion in the context of these problems. i am particularly struck by the overwhelming hypocrisy of the claim that the president in interpreting the law and in refusing to interpret the law in the way that would drive a stake through the law is not enforced. it's amending that he and force the law in the way that the person making the demand is not taking care and must be painfully executed. it's to the president to interpret the law within the boundaries that he has in a way that makes practical implementation of the law to fluctuate the will of the congress and the fact people that want to sabotage the wall and for if no it not to work ane no bones about it save he is not obeying this particular sentence in order to make it work. talk about hypocrisy. let me ask a question. have you made this statement i want to ask mr. lazarus the following question
